I just spent the last couple of hours working on my other blog. I recently downloaded a trial version of Ecto. It’s an off-line blog client. I haven’t had any problems with the program itself. I did have difficulty importing all previous entries from my other blog due to a hard-coded limit on the number of posts available via RSS.
Oddly enough I was not able to find a configuration setting within the admin interface nor any information in the on-line documentation or the forums. Ultimately, I setup the connection to use the MetaWeblog API. I then modified the PHP configuration file for this connection type within Nucleus (under the XMLRDP directory). To increase the number of posts I had to increase the maximum number in a comparison. Once I was able to pull all of the older posts into Ecto I set the range back to its original value. So far so good.
